Re: Problem with NVDA while reading documents

Quentin Christensen

As is will be fine - we can skip the unnecessary bits :)

Re UI Automation, it's basically a different way for NVDA to get the information about where the focus is and what is happening in Word.  Not everything is available using UIA, although there are some things available that way which aren't available using traditional methods.  Unfortunately it's not something that we can "mix and match" to get everything - we have to use either all UIA or all traditional methods.

For now, for most users, we feel the original way still works best, but UIA is there either for people who want to try it (probably developers) or for those who need to access something only available using UIA.

Woops, sorry. It was Alt+tab. And for what it was reading, it was
reading the title of the document. When I pressed alt tab or windows+M
to go to the desktop, the speech would stop and it would go there but
if I pressed Shift or control then still it would not stop speaking. I
will mail the logue to the e-mail you suggested.
One more thing, when I started NVDA in debug mode, the problem
occurred after 15 to 20 minutes. The log is around 8000 characters
long so should I remove the dialogue of the unwanted speech during
those 15 minutes or send the log as it is?
Ralf, I looked at the UI automation option in the advanced settings
and it was not enabled. What does it actually do?
